Keep a close eye on eBay as they come & go on there.
I bought a few on ebay over the last 5 years so be patient
I have paid anywhere from $50 to $100

Magma is out of Business now so this stuff is getting harder to find :-[
Here is one now with the Intel Chipset for proper use in OS9

how did you manage to find the PCI host card? or did you ignore the usual price tags (what did you pay?)

i.e. What exactly is a "MIDI port"?

i believe  that is relatively clear and needs no redefinition.

Quote
The fact that you can connect more than one UM880 or Opcode Studio is due to the interface's ability to combine and route all their data that presents to the computer as "one" device.

the main reason is the driver layout. some drivers are single client, others are not. for example the steinberg midex-8 usb supports 4 units in OS9 but only 2 in OSX.

Quote
There's also an issue with how many unique ports you can address at once which is where OMS and FreeMIDI come in but that's a different worm also.

that is the main bottleneck. what is been limited in OMS, will not be compensated by anything else.

Quote
Just because you can connect x number of ports at once doesn't necessarily mean you can really use them simultaneously.

such scenarios can happen, but i dont think it would be the wanted behavior. both serial and usb are fast enough to support 8-16 ports (most interfaces only have about 8 ports) and the buffer in the midi interface is also per port.

the ability of the most receiving devices and of the midi protocol itself should be always lower than the other side (computer & co)

OMS itself uses internally codenames for the first 24 ports which are going from a-z (excl the IACs and virtual IOs from apps). but it supports far more than 24 ports. i just dont know how many, that information seems to be missing in the manual.

iŽd also like to know how to adress the port coming after z from an app.
